Edmonton actually had quite a run with call centres in the early 1990's when we seemed to be desperate to get anything. As the economy here improved over the next decade, I think a number of them closed or moved to where wages were lower and it was easier to find staff.We want ALL types of jobs in Edmonton, including the "fancy IT" ones. If they're all call centre jobs, sweet, we have office vacancies to fill with very good telecom solutions available.
Trying to be picky over the type of jobs we attract is a losing strategy
